"Younger readers will be able to learn amazing facts about some of the most fascinating creatures the sea has to offer and do it independently as the text is short and to the point. Readers are encouraged to learn about these creatures and be judges as to which is the most amazing of them all. The illustrations are detailed and a fair rendition of the animals they represent. It is rich in figurative and descriptive language, for example "colossal" and "master of disguise". It is an excellent example to explore the notion that not all non-fiction books use photographs as a text feature. The author's note at the end encourages readers to explore a career in ocean science, and to become an advocate for sea creatures as well. It also provides a bibliography and online resources to further study the oceans and those who live in it. Recommended." said.

"Marine biologists study all life in the earth's oceans and other saltwater habitats. Exploration of a world containing more than ninety-six percent of earth's water increases understanding and assists in preservation efforts. The adaptations made by the fauna in the given conditions are nothing short of incredible.

According to this statement

Scientists estimate that no more than 5% of the oceans have been explored. (MARINEBIO)

we've many, many more wonders to discover. Author Brenda Z. Guiberson and illustrator Gennady Spirin (Frog Song and The Greatest Dinosaur Ever) present to readers an array of underwater residents in their newest collaboration, The Most Amazing Creature In The Sea (Henry Holt And Company, June 6, 2015). Some of them will be familiar to most readers, others will be enchantingly different.

My full recommendation:

"This book was interesting, but in a very picture book type of way. I felt like a lot more information could have been included. It didn't seem very scientific, but more or less a few sentences about each of the creatures, with an attempt to turn a few facts into a story. It would have been cool if there was a fact sheet or something, that told more specifically where these animals lived, their weight, diet, etc. Then it would have been a great research resource, instead it was just an average picture book. " said.

" If you ever wonder why I am afraid of the ocean, I will pass you this book. Guh. " said.

" The targeted audience will enjoy the strange creatures Guilberson has chosen to highlight in this book. The format is perfect for either individual enjoyment or as a research lesson launch. " said.

" Great picture book for a read aloud or discussion of sea creatures. Good for comparing and contrasting. " said.

" WOW! I love the illustrations! Wonderful weird creatures with cool facts that are fascinating for all ages. Bluestem 2018 book. " said.

" Simply gorgeous illustrations. Wow. " said.
